Shoe Porn: Two Decades of Louboutin

Sep 27, 2011 By Amy

Every A-list red carpet has more than a few matching soles. Red soles and artistic designs, along with a swarm of celebrity clients, have help rocket Christian Louboutin to the forefront of the well-heeled footwear industry. While he may have gone a tad sue crazy over the use of the red sole, his artistic creations remain unmatched. In celebration of twenty years of the successful shoe house, Louboutin is releasing a high fashion coffee table book. And this text is far from boring as it includes five-piece foldout binding and a pop-up, emphasizing a vivid retrospect on Louboutin’s designs and history. Divided into six chapters fans can get cozy with the shoe designer. Interestingly, the forward for the self-titledChristian Louboutinwas written by Louboutin’s friend,John Malkovich.

According to the overview, “The first chapter covers Louboutin’s biography, his start as a designer from his work for Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent to his first boutique in 1992, and his early creations and influences illustrated with many never-seen-before photos from his personal archives; chapter two features the Louboutin boutiques around the world showcasing the varied and extravagant interior designs and displays; chapter three is “20 years of design” and highlights his shoe designs from over the years with all-new still-life photography, as well as editorial art; chapter four features the spectacular interiors of Louboutin’s homes in Paris and Luxor, Egypt, and behind-the-scenes shots from his studios and workshops; chapter five focuses on his creative collaborations with David Lynch, of a series called “Fetish,” of limited-edition shoes by Louboutin and limited-edition photos by Lynch; chapter six is a complete catalogue raisonne of his work, with photos of all 120 shoe designs.”

Christian Louboutin is currently available for sale and next time we see Malkovich or Lynch at an event we’ll be sure to peep their footwear to see if they’re wearing Louboutin for men.
